About the adventure

This is a Waterdeep: Dragon Heist campaign! This short, level 1-5 game will be played over Roll20 with some assistance from Discord and D&D Beyond. This campaign (and the DM!) is very new-player friendly and will be a fun, inclusive tale involving a central mystery, conspiracies, rivals, and very possibly some side-hustling on the part of the characters. If the ideas of getting to the middle of a vast conspiracy, owning a business, building a reputation, or urban adventure in a high-fantasy city excite you, this adventure is for you!

Additional Details

How to prepare

Players will need a webcam and mic, access to Discord and D&D Beyond, as well as a Roll20 account. The Beyond20 extension is recommended but not required.

What I provide

I provide the adventure module and all relevant maps and handouts via Roll20, a Discord server for the group to hang out and chat in, and the D&D Beyond campaign to house everything for reference the players might need.

Gameplay details

Players can expect a rules-knowledgeable DM who endeavors to not let those rules get in the way of having fun or doing something cool. Safety tools and regular check-ins will be utilized to ensure everyone is having the experience they want to have.
